Damn he really had a problem with his massive ego and arrogance. But his behavior sort of paved the way for Big B in many ways as well. I think Big B struggles as a newcomer kept him humble and in-check. But talk about karma.

@Original Poster...who is bringing Rajesh Khanna down? 99% of the articles coming out after his death are only talking about his positive side...infact, they are actually painting a picture of him as this tragic figure, a fallen hero. Only some articles are giving the other point of view. As far as I can see, there has been a wave of nostalgia and admiration for him since his death...I think this is the maximum adulation and popularity he has got since his decline from the movies in the late 1970's.
And the news about the B Family being cold towards Dimple is completely false! Jaya and Dimple's friendship is one of the oldest in B-Town. Dimple did not know Jaya and Amitabh through her marriage to Rajesh...they had been friends before too. (Dimple belongs to a very wealthy and well-known Gujrati Family...her father was quite well-connected in Bollywood!)
There was a rift between Jaya and Dimple, but that was because the B Family had only invited Dimple along with Rinkie and her husband for Aishwarya and Abhishek's wedding and not invited Akshay and Twinkle.
The point is not whether RK was a saint or sinner...the point that you are making (and which is being disputed here) is that Dimple was no roadside tramp either, who piggybacked on her husband's success and then ditched him later on! Rajesh Khanna's stars were already on the decline when he married Dimple in 1974...and one of the biggest reasons for their marriage going to the Dogs was that RK wasn't able to handle his failure.
There has been talk about RK physically abusing Dimple in the 10 year marriage they had...though she has never spoken about it! Many articles printed at that time have hinted at that.
Coming to Amitabh...the reason for his enduring success has less to do with his having a 'supportive family' and more to do with the fact that he was a very career savvy person and made some smart choices which ensure that his success run went on for such a long time. Whereas, Rajesh Khanna, despite his talent and good-looks could not sustain his success for more than 5 years (1969-1974 to be precise)...he wasn't even married to Dimple by the time his films started how can she be accused of causing his downfall?Confused
Frankly speaking, I don't want to write anything negative against RK...I dont' remember feeling so sad at any other actors' demise as I feel for Rajesh KhannaOuch
...I have been obsessively reading all the articles regarding him since his death and watching so many of his films on DVD and listening to his songs from morning to night...he truly was something else as an artist and an actor.
But as a human being, he did make some rather questionable choices and was pretty much flawed. That's all I was trying to say!

What Shabana had to say:

I call her a credible and an intelligent source!

"Not many people knew he was a large-hearted person who threw lavish parties.Those were the days when stars were known to throw parties at their producers expense, but not kaka. He would invite the entire cast and crew of his films to enjoy the success and would foot the entire bill"

Media changes facts conveniently. Rajesh would have been doing something normal for those times.

If RK wanted to stick to Burman, it gives proof of his loyalty, even at such high risk days! Why not take it that way.

There had been no talks of physical abuse in marriage; Kaka had no affair, when Dimple stayed with him. She had an affair. If magazines had printed about abuse, then it maybe another hyped story, or maybe one time thing at Dimple's behavior. Dimple, who had thrown so much dirt on RK, back then, could not have kept quiet about this one, hence the veracity is to be doubted. On sets of Jaanbaaz it is said, that Feroze Khan pointed he had not seen any girl having so much temper within her as Dimple. Roadside tramp, may not be the case, but RK did not have her loyalty, when he needed it most. She also played on him, by refusing divorce, when she had no desire to offer comfort or company.

Dimple stayed with him in his good days, and left on his bad. She is the closest fair weather friend he had.

kaka said , when Akshay warmed up, that he wants to celebrate Twinkle's birthday, which is on the same day as his, with Twinkle. Akshay had to consider this and arranged for it. Doesnt that tell you that Dimple may even have been controlling when sharing her kids?

In the cinema world Kaka survived from 1969 to 1985, which is a long enough time. Most starts have similar history, tho most are not heartbroken as Kaka.

I had read in one article, that when pancham was in for a heart surgery, Kaka visited the hospital. He asked permission to take Pancham out, and was denied. Then he asked the doctor, "do you have a remedy for broken hearts" or something of the like, and the doctor diplomatically said, 'if such remedy comes, people will stop watching your movies"

Kaka was a sensitive man, and media has turned his image to something that is not fair.  It maybe because he himself was not interested in fighting back, or defending himself, in the end,  as he had been heartbroken, that media made mincemeat on him. Kaka once requested Nasem Khan to get him home made food. He said he could afford outside food, but craved for some comfort. A sad man cannot defend himself. Media is cruel, when it needs an audience.

Amitabh and Kaka, posed for the magazine together in 1990 and not now.

Another vedio, worth watching.

Akshay Kumar, the noble man, helped ease some of the unhappiness for Kaka.

Dimple not only agreed to act in a film opposite RK (which he produced and requested Dimple to act in, since she was a bigger star by then), almost a decade after their seperation, she along with both her daughters campaigned for RK for Lok Sabha Elections in Delhi, both times, once when he lost and again when he won. There are pictures of Dimple, alongside Twinkle and Rinky with Rajesh Khanna, campaigning for him during the Lok Sabha Elections which took place in the mid-90's!
RK and Dimple had a lot of bitterness in the beginning of their seperation, but later, they both reconciled for the sake of their daughters and were pretty much on coridal terms. If this wasn't the case, then RK wouldn't have allowed Dimple and his family to be near him during his last days.

my reply would be,

"For the publicity. Someone who did not pay any attention to him, so much so that he felt lonely at his last few years, and requested a fan for home made food and company at his unhappy times" goes to say that she would do anything for the publicity.

Also, a correction. Most of Dimple's movies have flopped, the hit ones like Saagar, Jaanbaaz, her acting has not really been that great, atleast, not to match kaka's. She did some art movies... Only kaka can answer why they decided to act together, but it definitely wasn't in good intentions for kaka. She may have been in a short lived fame  but her time has been marked with much more superior stars, both in talent and beauty, and their roles were more quality than meaty.

The Rowdiest, you are right. Dimple is known for her foul language, but Rajesh Khanna is too dignified to throw dirt on anyone. In fact, he has defended Dimple, till the end. While Dimple, in most of her interviews claims, "the marriage has been a farce, I would have been very successful if not for the marriage", our Kaka has been saying, "Its just a misunderstanding. Dimple will return some day".
